As far as ultimate disappointments for an international equestrian competitor to face, one thing tops defeat at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, and that is having to withdraw their horse or being eliminated for an injury or illness. After all of the years of hard work, dedication, and hopes and dreams, and not to mention the money invested, multiple horse-and-rider combinations were pulled in dressage, some before they even set foot in the arena in Normandy, France. During the trot inspection on Sunday, August 24, Donpetro HL, ridden by Natalya Yurkevich of Kazakhstan was held, represented, and then eliminated. The German-born Hanoverian gelding was said to be unlevel during the trot-up. Also that morning, the 15-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding, Carte d’Or, was not re-presented by rider Camila Kalseth of Norway, after a first failed jog.

During the Team Competition and Qualifier for the Grand Prix Special World Equestrian Games, Dressage fans sat through intermittent rainy weather that some riders had to deal with and others not. The stands had seats under cover about 10 rows back. The final set of riders on the second day of the class represented eight countries. The anchor riders for their teams were in the final set and all waited for the star of the show, Great Britain's Valegro and Charlotte Dujardin. They did not disappoint winning the class with an 85.271 percent. But it was the next rider to enter the arena for Russia, Inessa Merkulova and her beautiful Trakehener Gelding Mister X (by Egeus) who got an even bigger applause worthy of an image gallery on DressageDaily

CAEN, NORMANDY, - To be selected to represent one's country at a world championships is an honor that few riders ever experience. To not only compete but to perform well enough to advance through the rounds of competition to qualify for the finals is a rare achievement, indeed. Not one but two U.S. representatives in the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ para-equestrian dressage competition claimed that achievement today: Roxanne Trunnell, Grade Ia rider; and her WEG teammate Rebecca Hart, Grade II.

For Trunnell, 29, of Rowlett, Tex., today's freestyle aboard the nineteen-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare Nice Touch was a high note in several ways. For one, this is Trunnell's first time on a U.S. equestrian team. For another, it was the ride of a lifetime aboard the horse she's been paired with since Trunnell was 13. And to top it off, this was Nice Touch's swan song.

Normandy, FRA, - For the second day in a row, Canada's Lauren Barwick had a podium finish for her Freestyle Test during the last day of para-dressage competition on Friday, August 29, at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy, FRA. Barwick of Aldergrove, BC, earned the silver medal riding Equine Canada's 13-year-old Oldenburg mare, Off to Paris, in the Grade II Freestyle Test. Barwick followed through on her prediction that she and her talented mare had a great Freestyle and were going to be a medal threat at the games. The pair received a fantastic score 76.250% for the sliver.

The sun shone, the crowds came, and the horses dazzled at La Prairie Racecourse in Caen today, as the Para-Equestrian Dressage riders at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy (FRA) took to the arena for individual freestyle medals. The Grade Ia title was won by Italy’s Sara Morganti with Royal Delight. She scored 78.800% to beat the reigning European and Paralympic Champion Sophie Christiansen (GBR) on Janeiro 6, who finished with silver on 77.550%. Germany’s Elke Philipp was overjoyed with her bronze medal with Regaliz on 76.750%.

Morganti said: “This is a dream come true. Royal Delight was beautiful today. She was on the music and did everything she could. I hoped and worked for a medal, and I dreamed of gold.”
